[movies]Matter Rides a Wave Around a Black Hole - NASA
A black hole is a massive object whose gravitational field is so intense that no light (electromagnetic radiation) can escape it. Researchers have seen evidence of hot iron gas riding upon waves of spacetime around black holes. This animation paints an intriguing image of how a spinning black hole can drag the very fabric of space around with it. Note: This animation zooms into a black hole and accretion disk showing how the spinning black hole drags spacetime around with it...

[movies]Black Hole Accretion Disk - NASA
A black hole is a massive object whose gravitational field is so intense that no light (electromagnetic radiation) can escape it. Around many black holes is an accretion disk of material emitting energy as it falls into the black hole. This animation shows a cutaway of the accretion disk. The gap between the accretion disk and the black hole represents the innermost orbit matter can be in before plunging into the black hole...

[movies]Merging Black Holes - NASA
A black hole is a massive object whose gravitational field is so intense that no light (electromagnetic radiation) can escape it. When two orbiting black holes merge, a massive amount of energy is released in the form of jets. Meanwhile, the movement of these massive bodies disturbs the fabric of space-time around them, sending ripples of gravitational waves radiating outward. These waves are predicted by Einstein's theory of general relativity, but have yet to be directly detected...

[movies]Gravitational Waves from Black Holes - NASA
A gravitational wave is a theoretical fluctuation in the curvature of spacetime caused by the movement of incredibly massive objects. In this animation, two massive black holes orbit each other, creating gravitational waves. Note: This animation shows two black holes orbiting each other, producing gravity waves. Animator: Dana Berry (Skyworks Digital). Writer: Michael D. McClare (HTSI).
